Chris (June 20, 2009):
Before RCC life was different. There was talk of divorce, I spent no time with our two boys, and I wasn’t going to church. I was talking with a friend about how my life was a mess and she mentioned, “you might be missing Jesus.” I didn’t have a church home I was conformable with, so she invited me to RCC. The music filled my heart, and the message restored my soul. There was a lot of crying that day and in the weeks to follow. I gave my life to the Lord in November ’09. Though not perfect, our marriage has improved. I’m learning how to find time with my boys (all three of them), and I’m learning more about Jesus and his grace every day.

Prior to RCC, I was a member of the Catholic faith. Though I attended just about every week there were many times I realized I was only attending because it’s what I always did. I never questioned much and was naïve to the many differences between Protestants and Catholics. When my husband and I were invited to attend RCC, I thought it would be for my husband’s sake and not my own. From the first service at RCC, I felt quite comfortable. It took me some time to really embrace what it meant to be a Christian. I was afraid of hurting my family, but knew I had to make the decision for myself. Almost a year later I decided to become born again. It took a couple of weeks for it to sink in, and when it did, I realized the fear I had lived in my whole life had disappeared, and I now knew the love Jesus had for me.

I met the Lord about 13 months ago. My life was a big ball of anxiety, worry, and no self esteem! My husband has known the Lord his whole life but was extremely patient with me. One morning, I awoke from a dream that, without any explaination needed, I knew was a visit from God! I then dedicated myself to trying my best to follow what I knew about God’s Word. I tried to understand as much as I could, listening to my husband who spoke like he had graduated from Bible class 101, and I was still practically being spoon-fed! In December of 2008, my cousin and his wife invited us to a candlelight service at their church. I was interested but very nervous to “commit” to a church, especially when so many mislead you…so we decided not to go! Well the Lord had other plans… We were going there no matter what. About 2 weeks later, we went and loved it. We were very comfortable here! Then three weeks of snow storms after, we fought to get back and have been here ever since! Since then, I am able to understand alot more and break it down later at home with my husband, which is great for the relationship, I might add! Not to mention, all of the comfirmation we have on almost a weekly basis… I have been baptized with the church along with my mom, stepson, and my cousin’s wife. We have built a strong family, and our company on Sundays has grown. Some Sundays, we need 2 cars. This past week, we needed 3 cars!! AMEN!!! Our spiritual life continues to grow, and we are all anxoius to see what step is next…always ready for another level!!
